Ascertaining type of attack on IT ops; data safe: Religare Ent

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

Amidst reports of cyber attacks on its IT systems, financial services conglomerate today said its data and operations are "completely safe" and its cyber security cell is investigating into the matter.

"We are currently assessing the situation, however, our systems, operations and client information and data remain unaffected and secure," a company spokesperson said over phone.

IT systems across the globe in the recent past have been facing some or the other kind of malware attacks with the intention to extract monies from the system owners.

said the problem is exactly not in the nature of cyber attacks and there were some stray incidents, following which an advisory was issued from the (IT) department of the company.

"There were some reported incidents on a few machines, our systems, client data, trading systems are all safe and unaffected and there is no impact on business as usual," the official said.

Late last month, operations at one of the terminals of Mumbai based port facility JNPT were affected due to a malware attack named "Petya".

Due to this, operations at the terminal of country's largest container port Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust (JNPT) were impacted on June 27 night as a result of a fallout of global ransomware attack, crippling some central banks and many large corporations in Europe.

Regligare said it cannot ascertain the exact details about incident as the IT team is still investigating the matter.
